the problem in our cities and unhappily in our schools where people like you have been able to get laws put on the books that keep people from being able to defend themselves. i honestly don't understand why you would rather have people be victims of a crime than be able to defend themselves. it is incomprehensible. >> you're an unbelievably stupid man, aren't you? >> it seems to me you're morally object ob toous and team to prefer to be a victim than being able to prevail over the criminal element. i don't want why you want to be the criminal's friend. >> what a ridiculous argument. have you no coherent argument whatsoever. you don't -- >> you have no -- >> you don't give a damn about the gun murder rate in america. you don't care. >> seems to me -- >> what you would like to see, let's go through this. >> they bounce right off of you. >> okay. that's not just happening on television. that is happening across the country. so consider it a back drop to an effort that's getting under way in washington, d.c. to try to effect something constructive about guns and the violence that's just so per
of our -- of our little city center. it's very important that everybody acknowledge that. and that certain requirements are made and are met. and in this particular case, it was apparent that someone in the state department at a relatively senior level denied a request for increased security. and the problem that we should have with that is that no single authority should be allowed to make a decision to deny an enhanced security posture. you can approve that. you might find out you went overboard and maybe increased too much security. that's never a bad thing. however, you shouldn't be allowed to deny those requests. that needs to go to a larger body and it needs to go to the very top if somebody's going to deny a request of an ambassador for increased security. >> so i hear you, general. but this board also recommended no disciplinary action. named no names. shouldn't someone specific be held accountable for what you just said? >> oh, of course. i mean, you've got to start at the very top. nobody's out to -- >> so is it hillary clinton? she's at the very top. she's the
tragedies in small towns and big cities all across america every day. since friday morning a police officer was gunned down in memphis leaving four children without their mother. two officers were killed outside a grocery store in topeka. a woman was shot and killed inside a las vegas casino. three people were shot inside an alabama hospital. a 4-year-old was caught in a drive-by in missouri and taken off life support just yesterday. each one of these americans was a victim of the everyday gun violence that takes the lives of more than 10,000 americans every year. violence that we cannot accept as routine. so i will use all the powers of this office to help advance efforts aimed the at preventing more tragedies like this. we won't prevent them all, but that can't be an excuse not to try. it won't be easy, but that can't be an excuse not to try. i'm not going to be able to do it by myself. ultimately, if this effort is to succeed, it's going to require the help of the american people. it's going to require all of you you. if we're going to change things, it's going to take a wave of american
the national stage, there are many cities across the country who are pushing gun buybacks as a way to perurge gu from the streets as many as they can and quickly. police officers offer deals to those who own guns, turn in your gun no question asked and you'll get money, a gift card, worth a couple hundred dollars and police go and destroy those guns. i want to bring in antonio villaraigosa. good to see you back here. >> good to see you, brooke. >> let me begin with l.a. i know you're moving up the annual gun buyback from may to the day after christmas. you're offering grocery store gift cards up to 200 bucks in exchange for the guns. no questions asked. why do you think this works? >> well, we worked with a group of mothers who had lost their children. mother's day we're going to accelerate this a bit and do it a day after christmas. it works because of guns that could otherwise be stolen or used in a crime, used to hurt someone off the streets. we have collected assault weapons, grenade launchers, guns of every sort, rifles, everything you can imagine over the years. about 8,000 of them. and
